I (Grace) went to Chicago in early June. Chicago has become a more and more livable city with many historical landmarks and modern ambiance. Here are some famous buildings along the Chicago River. On the far left hand side is the newly opened Trump International Hotel and Tower. The building with the clock tower is the Wrigley building which is the Headquarter for the Chewing gum company. Behind that is the Tribune Tower which is the Headquarter for the major daily newspaper, Chicago Tribune. The road between the two buildings is the Michigan Avenue, also called Magnificent Mile.
Here is a close up of the clock tower of Wrigley building and the neo-gothic style of the Tribune Tower.
I took the photograph from the lobby of the Restaurant Sixteen at the Trump International Hotel and Tower. Here you can see that the Wrigley building has two towers: in the front (South Tower) is 30 stories tall, and in the back (North Tower) is 21 stories high.
Here is the small dining room beside the main dining room with fantastic view, clean design and more intimate seating.
I took this photograph from my hotel window at 5:30 AM. This is the other side of the Chicago River. The twin "corncob" towers are the famous Marina Towers Condominium. You can keep your boat at the lower dock, park your car at the lower levels, and live on the top levels. A true Marina City with shops, restaurants, and cinemas.
Here is the same place late at night. You can see the dark blue sky and the reflections on the Chicago River.
